Happy Birthday Jayne Mansfield
Born on this day in 1933 the ultimate sex bomb/pinup (in my opinion) and actress in such classics as The Girl Can't Help it (classic scene with the milk bottles), Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter. Hell on Frisco Bay and The Wayward Bus (for which she won a Golden Globe). In 1963's Promises! Promises ! she was the first major American star to appear in a movie nude scene. The photos were printed in Playboy magazine and resulted in an obscenity charge for Hugh Hefner. Also starred with husband Mickey Hargitay in 1960's The Loves of Hercules (AKA Hercules vs. The Hydra). She was killed in an automobile accident in 1967.
